Hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be available for adoption at the 19th Annual Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair to be held at Newhall’s William S. Hark Park on Sunday, Oct. 13, thanks to the partnership of LA County Department of Parks and Recreation and LA County Department of Animal Care and Control.

The 2019 fair, sponsored by; Pets-Global (Zignature Dog Food & Fussie Cat & Essence), Animal Medical Center, Ingolstadt West German Auto Specialists (Canoga Park) and Happy Pets Veterinary Center, kicks off at 11 a.m.

Since it began in 2001, the Santa Clarita, CA based Bow-Wows & Meows, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, run by an all volunteer board, has adopted out over to 2,650 pets at its annual fairs which sees attendance in excess of 10,000 people each year. Well behaved dogs of any breed may accompany their owner to the fair provided they are leashed (non-retractable), at least 18 weeks of age and fully vaccinated. The Bow-Wows & Meows Pet Fair does not support breed discrimination, all are welcome.

All seven Los Angeles County Animal Shelters will be present offering discounted adoption fees of just $30 and their veterinary team will be on hand to answer questions from new adopters. Dedicated County shelter volunteers will be ready to share information about the wonderful animals that they have spent quality time with getting to know. Every County shelter pet is spayed or neutered, immunized, microchipped, and ready to go home immediately. Adopters are gifted a special “I’ve Just Been Adopted” bag (over $300 of free goodies and services) for their new family member compliments of Bow-Wows & Meows sponsors and vendors.

“Adoption is the most humane way to bring home a new pet and it is the most cost-effective, too,” said Yvonne (Allbee) Hanson, founder of Bow-Wows & Meows, Inc. “Most of the dogs and cats at the fair were once part of a family, so they acclimate really well to being in a home again. Families often speak of a very special bond that develops with their adopted pet and many claim it to be one of the greatest things they have done” boasts Hanson as she nods based on her own experience with her adopted shelter dogs and cats.

In 2018, Bow-Wows & Meows adopted out 166 shelter and rescue animals at the fair. “Our goal is to send all the shelter trucks back empty at the end of the day and with the community’s help, we can make that happen.” Hanson said.

Entrance to the family-friendly fair is free and activities include:
• Expert dog agility performances by Santa Clarita Valley Dog Agility Club at 11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
• The Famous Fun Dog Show, with categories ranging from best vocalist to mystery mutt to pet-owner look-alike at 1:30 p.m. Enter your dog for $10, winners receive $50 (and bragging rights!)
• Huge “Super Raffle” with amazing prizes at just $1 per ticket
• Food Truck Court with delicious dining options (including vegan and vegetarian)
